Functional Capacity Evaluation
A functional capacity evaluation (FCE) evaluates an individual’s capacity to perform work activities related to his or her participation in employment (Soer et al., 2008). The FCE process compares the individual’s health status, and body functions and structures to the demands of the job and the work environment. In essence, an FCE’s primary purpose is to evaluate a person’s ability to participate in work, although other instrumental activities of daily living that support work performance may also be evaluated. Similar types of testing may also be called a functional capacity assessment (FCA), physical capacity assessment or evaluation (PCA or PCE), or work capacity assessment or evaluation (WCA or WCE).

Low Vision Evaluation
A low vision rehabilitation evaluation uses a team approach combining an optometrist and an occupational therapist. Patients are referred to the program by their primary care physician for a low vision evaluation completed jointly by an optometrist and an occupational therapist. The optometrist portion of the evaluation includes assessment of visual acuity, contrast sensitivity function, and macular perimetry with a scanning laser ophthalmoscope. The occupational therapy evaluation focuses on assessing the functional limitations experienced by the patient due to the vision loss and determining how the patient is best able to use remaining vision to complete daily activities. Occupational therapy treatment emphasizes training the patient to use remaining vision as efficiently and effectively as possible to complete daily activities and includes training in use of optical devices. Because of the specialized nature of the service provided, additional postgraduate preparation is needed to enable occupational therapists to provide effective low vision rehabilitation.

Independent Living Assessment
Living at home efficiently is a goal that all of us share, but changes occur in our ability to function mentally and physically, making it a challenge to remain at home, safely. These changes often necessitate thinking through next steps and taking action, such as installing safety devices and getting support where ever needed.
This evaluation looks at all aspects of an individuals life from the kitchen to the bedroom, and recommends appropriate products and services.
Pediatric Therapy
Pediatric occupational therapy helps children gain independence and promotes development of fine motor skills, sensory motor skills, and visual motor skills that children need to function and socialize in their home, school, play, and community environments. In the case of an injury or debilitating illness, our services focus on rehabilitating children, allowing them to return to their daily routines at their highest level of function.

Neuromuscular Rehabilitation
Neuromuscular Program focuses on increasing function, physical and emotional well being for all patients. In line with our services, devotion to healing and caring for others, our Neuromuscular Program is fully equipped to care for patients who require a rehab program due to serious illness.
Sensory Integration Therapy
We support a full spectrum of approaches and interventions used in occupational therapy practice as part of an intervention plan that focuses on the participation of the client, including the appropriate use of sensory integration therapy (SIT).
The idea behind SI therapy is that specific movement activities, resistive body work, and even brushing of the skin can help a child with sensory problems experience an optimal level of arousal and regulation. This, according to OTs, can actually “rewire” the brain so that kids can appropriately integrate and respond to sensory input, allowing them to both make sense of and feel safer in the world.
Developmental Rehabilitation
We offer evaluate and treat variety of challenges due to injury to the brain, injury at or before birth, being born early, bone, muscle or balance issues, or difficulty speaking or eating. Services are available on an outpatient basis requiring a referral. We focus on the needs of the child and family to assist them in becoming as independent as possible through therapies and education.
